‘Please, Scientists, Ignore Me’
Scientists say Pluto is not a planet. Tell that to my clients who are experiencing the irrevocable changes and regeneration of a Pluto transit. Pluto transits are the rarest, the slowest, and the most dramatic. Scientists also say there is a 13th sign. Tell that to Rachel Maddow, who will not relinquish her textbook Aries nature for seclusive Pisces. I rely on the ephemeris, a table of planetary motion that is accurate to a second and has not added a 13th sign. Please, scientists, ignore me.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
A lot of misrepresentation in social circles means that your plans are not on the path to fruition. It’s best to take this month off. Restrict frivolous activity and allow for space to breathe — slowly and deeply. Others add to your abundance, but they are not the usual suspects. Expectations will lead you to unpleasant dead ends. Expect the unexpected and open your mind to receive. Take more responsibility for a philanthropic activity; avoid lip service.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Your spiritual health is in direct proportion to your gains this month. When issues arise, deliberately focus on an area where you can improve a situation, apply yourself to it, and do it. You will return to a solution and a pure willingness that will surprise you with unexpected help. It is not as hard as it looks; the problem is your perspective. Retreat, refresh, renew. Is there a spa experience in your future? Pay yourself first.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The opposition does not have the upper hand; this is an illusion. There is a viable network of contributors. Your vision is especially moving to a group. Attend gatherings with purpose to reinforce your own determination. You are only two phone calls (or e-mails) away from a major coup. Link associations in triangular mathematics until you find a solution. Invest in yourself; turn over a troublesome chore to a professional. You’re worth it.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
An unprecedented amount of meetings and messages arise from many sources this month. In order to save precious time, hone your sense of malarkey, and limit time with blowhards. None are prepared for the details necessary to accomplish goals. This is a time for lecture, when ideas rule. Lab work comes soon, and you will have no time for unproven theories. Your best response: “Interesting …”
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
There’s much demand from the world; your best defense is quality sleep. Don’t neglect physical health in a rush of professional activity. Take care of yourself first so that you are able to handle the craziness. New beginnings are necessary; make sure you have adequate leadership in place for totally new and exciting projects. The strength of your vision attracts assistance that, in turn, can benefit through your philosophies. Lead the leaders.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
A behind-the-scenes relationship should be a spiritual reserve, not an emotional drain. Someone’s overwhelming need of you tugs at your sense of yourself as rescuer, and it will suck the air out of your energies if you allow it. It’s time to assess the balance of your alliances. Think of a relationship as a seesaw. Are you stuck in the high position? Or is there balance between you? Act on your perceptions.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
It’s a great time to invest in your image; everything from hairstyle to shoes can be subtly revamped to change the impression you make upon those who could be helpful. Virgos are naturally conscious of style and appearance, but a little updating could do wonders. You will be privy to machinations and motivations of an under-the-radar movement. Knowledge can be power, especially if you withhold judgments, opinions, and information. Be inscrutable.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
The subconscious is the other 90 percent of our brain, and there are times when there is much gridlock on the information highway. Your 90 percent is overflowing and requires a teardown and rebuild. Practice frequent meditation or take yourself out of the fray for a few days of renewal. Restore the balance of activity and seclusion and you will be ready to tackle a major undertaking next month. Savor the downtime; know it contributes to mental health.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Seek playtime in whatever activity allows you to escape into a dream world. You will be amazed at how close your reveries are to reality. You are able to significantly predict the future and spot trends that will lead to changes. A fleeting opportunity to improve service levels should be pursued and acquired. You are as effective as your chosen vendors. Compromise dilutes outcome. Demand quality.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Retreat to a place by water would renew your faith in divine order. Home improvements can add value when carefully considered. Give a professional project a spot in the home office. A significant communication arises from a reclusive period. Your presence is not required, but your opinions will drive the action. Your management skills can improve from afar. Trust you have trained them appropriately.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
With a lot more responsibility, but limited authority, you feel pressured to micromanage or take on more than you should. Work through this period of reprioritizing with calm confidence that all will eventually agree. A working knowledge of the law (legal or cosmic) will guide you through a miasma of opinions. Remember, everybody has one. An untenable situation can dissolve simply (but not easily) by removing energy from it. Make ethics a priority.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
A couple hours drive from ground zero (where it all piles up) can reinvigorate you and provide a new attitude and ideas. By remaining stationary, you are running the same tapes over and over and missing the solution. Answers come from the ether when you have taken time to focus on pure awareness. Interest in a project that improves the common good will connect you with like-minded others that can be significant in times to come.
